WAYNE'S WORDS: THE E-SYLUM APRIL 13, 2008

Among our recent subscribers are Tony Hine, Steve Hayden and
Kim Ghobrial. We now have 1,144 subscribers.

This week we open with word on the latest Asylum issue and
three new books - one on a Baltimore numismatic treasure, one
on Morgan dollar varieties, and one relating to banking and
obsolete bank notes.  Next, a curator wins a great honor and
plans a new numismatic book.

In follow-ups from last week, we learn more about the 1847
Riddell pamphlet on the New Orleans Mint (and who purchased it).
Queries this week cover many topics, including former Asylum
editor Carling Gresham, the Royal Mint's new reverse designs,
getting smoke smell out of books and the Yoachum Silver dollar.

In the news, the Nevada Historical Society acquires a trove of
Comstock Lode related letters, "Public Enemy" begins filming in
Oshkosh, a rare medal relating to Lord Nelson appears, and
politicians in Wales debate the return of banknotes there.

My numismatic diary this week has a Civil War theme - who were
the first Union and Confederate casualties in the war, and where
were they killed?  I had dinner at the location Tuesday night!

To learn who got an uncirculated 1804 Half Eagle for Christmas,
read on. Have a great week, everyone.
